Picturesque hidden bridge over the River Dyfi
The miniature proportions and mossy green appearance of this two-arched bridge give it a fairytale feel, but it was actually built for practical workaday reasons in the early 17th century to allow packhorses to cross the River Dyfi. Nowadays, traffic whizzes by along the A470 north–south trunk road unaware of its close presence, so be sure to take time to stop off for a look.
Pont Minllyn’s construction was paid for by Dr John Davies, rector of Mallwyd, one of the most prominent Welsh scholars of the era. He is believed to have had a hand in translations of the Bible and the Common Book of Prayer, as well as publishing his own book of Welsh grammar.
